Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan's estranged wife Linda has blasted his comments which revealed he understands why men kill their wives
Hulk Hogan's estranged spouse Linda has criticised him for saying he understands why men kill their wives.
The TV personality - who filed for divorce from the wrestler in 2007 because of his alleged affairs - is infuriated with her husband's recent comments.
She said: "Hulk's serial cheating destroyed our marriage, our family and our future. Sadly, his recent comments remind us that his definition of fair is much different than what the law dictates."
This comes just days after the wrestling legend - real name Terry Bollea - says he understands OJ Simpson, the star who was controversially acquitted of killing his wife Nicole Brown and her alleged lover Ronald Goldman in a jealous rage in 1994.
He said: "I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody's throat. You live half a mile from the 20,000 sq ft home you can't go to anymore, you're driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife. I totally understand OJ. I get it."
The wrestler claims he was driven out of his home by Linda and she is spending $40,000 of his money each month.
He has since released a statement which downplays his earlier comments.
It read: "Hulk in no way condones the OJ situation. As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation."
Meanwhile, Linda's publicist has also blasted the professional wrestler and claims his wife of 25 years was forced to live in fear because of Hulk's "rage and instability".
Gary Smith said: "We have always maintained that the fear that Linda has had to live with comes from the rage and instability much too often associated with pro wrestlers. Linda and her family are taking these recent homicidal comments seriously. Linda's attorney Ray Rafool is weighing all options necessary to protect his client."
